Polk County CARES for Seniors and the Disabled Assistance Program

The Polk County Board of County Commissioners has allocated $10 million for this program. Qualifying households will receive $2,000 to help with additional expenses incurred as a result of COVID-19. Only one application per household will be accepted. The application period for this program is now open.

While online applications are preferred, paper applications will also be accepted. To the greatest extent possible, Polk County recommends applying for assistance through its online electronic application, which uses an encryption process to help secure the information you submit. If you choose to submit a paper application for assistance, provide all supporting documents in a sealed envelope to assist in safeguarding your personal information.
